I’ve been busy chatting.

Here’s the transcript from today’s chat about Quality Counts 2009, “Portrait of a Population: How English-Language Learners Are Putting Schools to the Test.”

Education Week and the EPE Research Center have scheduled two more live online events to correspond with the publication of the report, including a Webinar on Jan. 13 at 2 p.m. Eastern Standard Time and a chat about the future of the education of ELLs to be held Jan. 15 at 3 p.m. The chat features Maria Santos, who oversees programs for ELLs in New York City; Ellen Forte, president of EdCount, LLC, who knows a lot about state ELL policy; and Ana Sol Gutierrez, a member of the Maryland House of Delegates.
